Since the 1980’s, the name “halal” has been increasing used in business and product naming. From halal food-processing to halal fashion, the breadth of goods and services that feature this name has grown dramatically. From the 24th to the 25 of April 2018, a unique conference exploring the modern uses of “halal” labelling will be explored at the Université Catholique de Louvain in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. Entitled “Rethinking Halal: Genealogy, Current Trends, and New Interpretations”, the conference is currently accepting abstracts for scientific presentations. The call for papers can be found here. Interested researchers are asked to send prospective abstracts (max. 1,000 words) to the following address: halal.conference.ucl.2018 AT gmail.com. The deadline is Monday, 8 January 2018.
